United Way is participating in the AmeriCorps Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) program. This national program has provided us with top-of-the-line staff members, allowing us to significantly expand our programs to reach more children and their families in Lake County. Each volunteer member makes a full-time, year-long commitment to serve on a specific project at a nonprofit organization or public agency.
All VISTA applications are required to be submitted through the MyAmeriCorps Portal (links above). All applications will be reviewed by Midwest Region staff before candidates are placed into service.
United Way of Lake County is an Equal Opportunity Employer dedicated to building a culturally diverse staff committed to working in a pluralistic and complex environment.
We encourage applications from people who identify as LGBTQAI+, women, veterans, people who have been historically marginalized and people with disabilities.
